Chances are Marcel Reece will again recede into the background with leading rusher Rashad Jennings having recovered from a concussion.

Having played in less than half of the Raiders' offensive snaps this season, Reece by necessity was on the field for all but two snaps in a 37-27 loss to the New York Jets.

The result was 19 carries, a career high 123 yards rushing, acknowledgment of a job well done and likely an immediate future of being shuttled on and off the field depending on the down, distance and play call when the Raiders play the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at Coliseum.

Yet Reece has no illusions of morphing from versatile fullback to lead tailback.

"I don't worry about that, I don't think about that," Reece said Wednesday. "The two initials next to your name on the roster mean nothing. I don't worry about my position. I just worry about making plays for my team and helping us win.

"Whatever these coaches need me to do, whatever my team needs me to do, I'm going to do it."

When the Raiders needed Reece to do everything against the Jets, he was up to the task, with the highlight being a 63-yard touchdown run that jump-started a sagging offense.

"He had to carry a load," Jennings said. "He had to block and run deep routes and churn out tough yards. He had a big run through an arm tackle before showing his speed."

A college wide receiver at Washington, Reece retains those skills in a 6-foot-1, 255-pound frame to go along with reasonable success running from scrimmage despite minimal work as a lead runner.
